    Welcome to the club!

    Yep, IMHO keep it NA and a few choice handling mods will improve it no end.

    Adjustable camber front and rear followed by a fast road set up would be my choice. JDM or aftermarket rear anti-roll bar too. And maybe lowering springs?
    If you must have engine mods then k100 or kpro would be first on my list, along with a TEGIWA m induction kit and a cat-back exhaust....

    Welcome along. Always good to see another type R on the forum.

    As far as mods go it depends very much on what you want the car for and what you use it for. Mine is a daily driver so my mods are fairly restrained. 300-350hp is achievable on standard internals with forced induction and makes for a very quick car with a few handling mods (fast road setup including camber arms and bolts) as well as wither springs and shocks (I am about to go with eibach springs and bilstien shocks) or coilers. Forced induction though does not come cheap.

    It really is down to budget and what you want the car to do at the end of the day though.

    Welcome, it doesn't help with performance as Type-R's are well set-up to begin with, but get an induction kit just for the noise when it comes on VTeC!!! :-P
